In 2011 Haley mired herself in controversy, having declared she is "not an alien abductee" and she thinks it's "all government mind control" - an idea far more problematic, and with less supporting evidence, than that we might be dealing with genuine alien intrusion. Her credibility as a consequence has been damaged, and some people would now disregard her entire body of written work over 18 years. Others make much of the author's "memory" of the military shooting down a UFO into which she claimed to be abducted and her subsequent confinement on an ocean-going naval ship, which is detailed in LwtK.
There are of course many instances where people change their minds on long-held positions. Whitley Strieber is full of inconsistencies and has said himself "I have a hard time telling the difference between fact and fiction," but none of this takes away from the fact that `Communion' published in 1987 was a VERY good book, stands up well even now and should be on the reading list of everyone interested in the abduction phenomenon - though you can give much of the author's later published work on the subject a wide berth and be better off for it.
So Haley's LwtK needs to be seen on its own merits, not judged against what the author subsequently may have said or done 18 years later.Read more ›
I'm not sure of my feelings for her story. I have met the author and heard her speak of her experiences, and she struck me then as quite credible. Her hypnotic regression sessions were handled by John Carpenter, who is well respected in the ufology community. Her writing is not polished; it most definitely reads as her own personal effort to describe the things she has remembered and learned in her own way; it is in no way a slick presentation targeted at the reader.Read more ›
